i've seen reporting where people have focused on reports that they were in contact, at least one of the killers was in contact with people who had been the subject of fbi investigations, closed-door still open. i would urge you not to make too much of that. there were no context between either of the killers and subjects of our investigations that were of such a significance that it raised these killers on to our radar screen. we are looking very closely at those contacts, but i would not want you do over index on that just yet. it is 48 hours old, as i said. make is much that does not sense for even those of us who do this for a living. that is the reason we have hundreds of people running down leads all over the world on this and spending tremendous amounts totime as we sit here trying understand the electronic record around these two killers. somethingse by saying that the attorney general and i have said before, and that is we
